Hackers claim they have stolen nearly 7 million Dropbox passwords (updated)

Hundreds of alleged usernames and passwords for Dropbox have been published on Pastebin, an anonymous information-sharing site.

The apparent hackers claim to have nabbed 6,937,081 passwords, and today published a “teaser” of 400 username-password pairs, They requested donations in Bitcoin and promised to release more passwords based on how much of the virtual currency they receive. The usernames appeared in alphabetical order starting with benitacran@btinternet.com and ending with bigjoetownsend@hotmail.com.

Subsequently, two more “teasers” have appeared on Pastebin.

A Reddit thread first mentioned the apparent leak about three hours ago. So far there’s been no official response from Dropbox. It’s not even clear if this is even a legitimate hack or if these are real usernames and passwords. But we’re reaching out to Dropbox for comment, and we’ll update this post as soon as we know more.
